Posts Tagged ‘thanking God’

…I shall fear no evil; for the Lord is with me…His rod and His staff…they comfort me…

Hey y’all!

Surprised? Don’t be…I had a running battle with sore throat for almost two weeks…you know the kind where you can hardly swallow even liquids? I had to brace myself for the sharp pain and discomfort whenever I had to swallow something…I was weak most times and slept like there was no tomorrow…

Thank God for a Pharmacist sister, a Nurse mum, a loving husband (he was truly a star during all of this), and an advisory dad…lol.

Seriously though, I thank God for my throat, and the ability to swallow without giving it a thought…thank God the husky/cracked/coarse voice is now a thing of the past…Imagine answering the phone and the person on the other end is scared or thinks I’m a man! hmmmm…the “little things” we so easily forget to thank God for…

With a grateful heart dear Lord, I give you thanks…

In the spirit of thanksgiving, a very B.I.G thank you to all of you who left good wishes, prayers and comments for my younger sister, on my last post, and to those who actually took the time to visit her wedding website…God bless you real good.

@ SolomonSydelle; the song really is very funny but rock on gurl…lol.

…and I’m sorry. Truly, deeply sorry…

  • I’ve grumbled about not having a paid job for so long, forgetting to thank you for the opportunities that you’ve opened up for me during this period, to make a difference, and to touch lives positively…
  • I’ve complained about not having MY OWN money to spend, neglecting to thank you for the wonderful man by my side, who insists that HIS money IS MINE too, and for giving him a wonderful job, with a wonderful boss, and wonderful opportunities…
  • I’ve whined about how my Masters degree and Chartered qualification seem to be hindering me from getting a job, as some recruiters have tagged me as “overqualified” (Read this post HERE), overlooking the possibility that if I’m being turned down for lower level positions, it can only mean that You have bigger and better things in stock for me…
  • I’ve murmured severally about not having any tangible creative skills or talents, not rembering that You have poured so much into me, and that all I need to do is simply look inwards, and draw out the “gold” that You have deposited in me…
  • I’ve complained about not HAVING, whereas, it’s really that I have not been DOING…and that it has been during this period of my not having, that You have showed up most and taken care of my EVERY need…it’s been during this time that You have increased us materially/financially, in the most unexpected and miraculous of ways…

Here’s Your baby Dee checking in Lord, to say thank you, for EVERYTHING (including the seemingly normal things like going to toilet, or getting up in the morning)…

I’m saying thank You Lord

…for life, excellent health, and soundness of mind…

…for being able to eat whatever we want, whenever we want…

…for our new, beautiful home…

…for ALL of our loved ones; family, friends, and neighbours…

…for our wonderful Church, Pastor, and Church friends…

…for daily inspiration/motivation/encouragement; Your WORD…

…for a renewed and strengthened walk with You…

…for You ALWAYS being there, and being God…

…for the opportunity to say I’m sorry…

Now and Henceforth, I’m Grateful!

PS; As contradictory as this may sound, I’d like you all to read THIS POST

Cheers
